Face it serum- stimulates new collagen production, reduces fine lines and wrinkles

We chose to make Chia seed oil the main ingredient in Face it serum for many reasons. Chia seed oil is the beautiful oil you get when you press the tiny seeds. It is rich in omega 3 fatty acids, loaded with unusually high levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants. The fatty acids promote a healthy plump look for your skin. In fact, Chia seeds have more than 30% cell protecting antioxidants than blueberries. It moisturizes skin, protects against skin problems like eczema and acne. Chia seed oil reduces fine lines and appearance of wrinkles. Face it serum is formulated with the finest blend of pure organic oils. It promotes cell renewal, stimulates new collagen production and helps improve skin tone, texture and pigmentation. Natural ingredients work in synergy with each other and become even more powerful. Platinum award 🥇 winner!

Natural skin tightening facial mask

Have you thought about a peeling facial treatment but the downtime with flaking skin puts you off? Regular use of the Sea me mask will give you similar results over time without the flaking. We’ve added masses of chlorella (an algae) in the recipe which tightens skin, improves production of collagen, stimulates cells to produce at a faster rate and acts as a skin healer (goodbye acne). Apply a thick layer to your face, neck and décolleté, wash of after 20 minutes for instant radiant results. Chlorella also improves overall skin tone and helps to diminish the signs of aging. I always also add Sea me mask to my head for a scalp massage (best hair day ever) A tip is if you wake up with puffy under eyes, apply a thick dollop of Sea me mask as an under eye mask. Gently remove after 20 minutes with a wet cloth. Et voila, reduces puffiness significantly 👍

Benefits of body lotion

An easy way to pamper yourself is applying your favourite body lotion every day. Some of the benefits using body lotion, it seals in moisture and prevents skin drying. A shower or bath can leave skin dry, reducing levels of your skin’s natural oils. A good body lotion restores your skin’s moisture balance. Body lotion softens your skin and soothes rough patches. By massaging the lotion into your skin, you improve elasticity and improves circulation. If you apply body lotion on clean damp skin or just before going to sleep it helps the skin absorb optimising nutrients. With a delicate scent, applying body lotion can also be an uplifting ritual to start or end your day. For a limited time, you can make great savings on our unisex organic Body buddy lotion with a delicious scent of Bergamot, Sweet orange and Lemongrass. http://www.trueorganicofsweden.com

Why you should think about adding anti pollution to your skincare routine

Why you should think about adding anti pollution to your skincare routine. Air pollutants don’t just smell bad, they cause free radical damage to your skin. That means it contributes to breaking down collagen, causing sagging, fine lines and wrinkles. While pollutants are a year around problem, the skin is extra sensitive and susceptible when exposed to cold winds and moisture stripping central heating. You can protect your skin from premature aging by using anti pollution skincare. In our Make my day cream we have the ingredient Algica which has proven anti pollution properties. Last chance this weekend for our January sales. trueorganicofsweden.com

Close Chinese wetmarkets

Spring has sprung in Sweden. What puts a damper on things is that the ban has been lifted on the horrific , disease ridden animal markets in China. Animals cramped in small metal baskets treated with extreme cruelty. If they don’t care about animals, then look at how the world is today and the tragedy the pandemic has caused. I don’t get how these markets are allowed to open again, do you?

7 best organic and natural deodorants for men

It’s not every day we talk or even think about our armpit health. But how could we not!?  These awkward little scoops of space beneath our arms are home to some very important lymph nodes that function to detoxify your body. Unfortunately, many of us are clogging the pores that release these toxins that are meant to be removed from the body. It’s time to replace the toxic mess you may be applying to your sensitive areas with one of the best natural deodorants for men in our list. But first, we must assess the damage.

Stop reaching for your scent-laden sport stick, clear antiperspirant gel, or spray canister,  if they contain any of the following carcinogenic ingredients that are keeping your armpits from doing their job.

Toxins in Conventional Deodorant

Did you know there are ingredients lingering in your current deodorant that could be slowly making you sick?

Checking labels usually means discovering there’s no actual Sandalwood in your “Sandalwood-scented sports stick” and instead you’ll be bombarded with hyphenated words that are impossible to pronounce. Even if there are only a few ingredients on the list, it doesn’t make it safe or natural. Here’s a list of the most common active ingredients found in deodorant, how the body responds to them, and why it’s best to replace them with one from our list of the best natural deodorants for men.

Aluminum

Aluminum-based compounds are the most common active ingredient in and perhaps the most dangerous. Acting as an antiperspirant, aluminum blocks sweat glands trapping the body’s natural waste from escaping. If absorbed (and it often is depending on how long you wear your deodorant), aluminum will alter the structure of estrogen receptors in breast cells (because of proximity) and increase the likelihood of breast cancer--yes, men get this too. Additional estrogen in men can also create other symptoms like enlarged breasts, infertility, and ED.

Triclosan

Triclosan serves as a preservative and powerful antibacterial in things like deodorant, antiperspirant, hand sanitizer, and other cosmetics. It seems natural to want to kill the bacteria on your pits but at what cost? The FDA labels Triclosan as a pesticide while the EPA calls it a probable carcinogen. The use of these ingredients creates toxic buildup in the body and deteriorates our environment, especially aquatic life.

Parabens

Prosecuting parabens isn’t new for this blog but unfortunately, they continue to be used in 75-90 percent of men’s body care products. The most common include methylparaben, propylparaben, ethylparaben, and butylparaben. Parabens are used as a preservative but what they actually do is alter hormones. Yet another risk for men to experience spikes in estrogen levels.

Parfum/Fragrances

Most men seek a strong, masculine scented deodorant. But you may be exposing yourself to a synthetic chemical soup that can damage your lungs, irritate your armpits, and cause allergic reactions.

Toxins in Conventional Deodorant

Unfortunately, the danger of these deodorants don’t manifest themselves immediately but over time can result in asthma, kidney damage, allergies, and even cancer. Beyond the long-term damage, the use of products that contain these toxins can cause you to be tired, unfocused, and can affect your appetite and mood.

Have you discovered any of these perpetrating ingredients in your current deodorant? If so, toss it out!. Your armpits deserve better, your health is too important, plus we’ve got stellar alternatives for you. Here are the best natural deodorants for men.
